We caught up with Anahu-Ambrosio to ask him about his recruiting:
Why did you choose BYU?
Because of the education they provide and the coaching staff. BYU is a good fit because the people are so well respected and the surrounding and outdoor environment is amazing.

Moving to Utah and attending Timpview high school allowed me to prove that I can keep up with a high caliber team while gaining trust from my teammates.
What something you’re proud of outside of football?
Pursuing a higher education while playing collegiate sports. I am representing my family and the Polynesian community, and I hope to honor them and the sacrifices they’ve made to get me to where I am today.
